ABOUT THE ORGANISATION

The Windsor Homeless Project (WHP) helps local homeless and vulnerable people rebuild their lives through a simple, three step process:

  • Empower: assessing individual needs and enabling each guest to make their own decisions and work towards their own goals.
  • Rebuild: providing a choice of ongoing support by working with local specialist organisations once a guest has been housed.

JOB DESCRIPTION
